Pimp my Stalker: Maxed out art style with mods
The Complete Mod allows the creation of graphics in Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl which is almost like photo art.
In the 3D-Center forum user OC_Burner, known for his Gothic 3 screenshots, has published a series of beautiful Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl pictures which we don't want to hold back.
The base for the screenshots is the Stalker Complete Mod. This mod of Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl combines many of the best and most important mods and illuminates the Stalker original game. The screenshots sometimes even look better than those of the Stalker successor Clear Sky. 3D-Center user OC_Burner achieved a resolution of 6,400 x 3,600 pixels by using download sampling technology and scaled them down to 1,280 x 720. The picture is scaled up in advance and then displayed via down sampling. Some pictures even seem to be sharper than before.
Besides the Stalker Complete Mod OC_Burner even used an adjusted file for weather in order to intensify the sunset. In the game itself he used maximum details and 16:1 AF. Have fun with those very impressive pictures.
